Saturday, October 8, 2011
PASADENA, Calif. (AP) -- Kevin Prince threw a go-ahead, 7-yard touchdown pass to Shaq Evans with 3:26 to play, and UCLA rallied from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter for a 28-25 victory over Washington State on Saturday night.
Prince passed for 173 yards and led a thrilling comeback after starter Richard Brehaut broke his leg in the second quarter, leading two late touchdown drives. Derrick Coleman rushed for two scores, and Josh Smith caught a TD pass for the Bruins (3-3, 2-1 Pac-12).
Marshall Lobbestael passed for 235 yards and hit Jared Karstetter and Rickey Galvin for second-half touchdowns, but Washington State (3-2, 1-1) couldn't extend its impressive start to the season.
Andrew Abbott intercepted Lobbestael's final pass near midfield with 2:01 to play.
